According to a report by Mckinsey Global Institute, progress towards gender equality has stalled, and Africa’s women lag behind their sisters in most other regions in most areas of their life. For Africa to reach its targeted potential women need to be empowered as the challenges being faced by the continent are likely to be reduced when women play an identical role in the labour market like their male counterparts.

Progress can be made but it has to be a deliberate effort from institutions, individuals, and government bodies combined, our panel session will focus on the role institutions can play to empower women, how individuals women could leverage technology, and institutional objectives to empower women of this generation and the next, and also how institutions can support through policies and laws.

In addition, we will review real-life case studies where there have been deliberate efforts towards empowering women, what have been the challenges, and the resultant outcome.  Finally, we will also be sharing relevant industry knowledge on how women could get stakeholders involved in causes that empower women.
